As reported by several sources the 49ers will indeed bench quarterback Colin Kaepernick in favor of Blaine Gabbert.
The #49ers are benching QB Colin Kaepernick, I'm told. He has been informed. Blaine Gabbert is the starter.

Gabbert will get his first start as a member of the 49ers on Sunday against the Falcons. Gabbert last played for the Jaguars, where he appeared in 28 games and threw 22 TDs compared to 24 INTs. Kaepernick has had a rough season, but the 49ers are fooling themselves if they think Gabbert is the answer. The Atlanta defense will look to take advantage of Gabbert, who is notorious for turning the ball over.
